To Audrey, Baird, Robert and Jennifer, We are sorry to here of your family’s loss of Jim. We fondly remember Dad,Tom Adams having a lively conversation with Jim on the phone about business and farm living. We came to the farm for a Baird Reunion and saw Aunt Abby seated in a chair on the lawn. She had a sharp mind, remembering who we were and easily talking to us. Thank you for having your farm as the gathering spot, for the reunion, so we could reconnect with our family history. There were a few other visits when we came in our motor home, once you showed my niece, Ashley and nephew Adam around the farm and the cows, these are good memories we treasure of spending time with you. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers. The Adams Family: Evon (Shearer), David & Anna Nathan Philip, Jeanene Grace Eve, Annette: Adam & Veronica & Stella, Ashley & Brett , and Nanette.
